ACS CAN Pride Materials


Atlanta Pride Festival

Research confirms that the LQBTQ community carries a disproportionate burden of cancer, has distinctive risk factors, and faces additional barriers to accessing health care. There is both greater cancer incidence and more late-stage diagnoses in this population. By participating in events like Pride, we can assist members of this community in fighting back against a disease that takes such a terrible toll on them. Here are some resources to aid in this effort.

Examples of Our Work

This press statement went to national health policy reporters on May 10, 2021 in support of the Administration’s actions to preserve protections for LGBTQ patients under the Affordable Care Act.
